Fez doesn’t lack for variety in its accommodation options, with everything from simple pensions to boutique riads. Your main choice is whether to stay in the colour and chaos of the medina, or a petit-taxi ride away in the ville nouvelle (where budgets tend to go further). Room rates in Fez are in the higher (city) bracket. Booking in advance is advised during high season, and especially during the Festival of World Sacred Music in June, when supplements also often apply. Note that although prices here are listed in dirham, many riads actually list (and charge) rooms in euros, so be aware of currency exchange rates when booking.
